Hurrah, it’s another Taylor Swift dating story! We haven’t had one of those in… a day. This time around, Taylor’s been saying that her slew of famous boyfriends – from Harry Styles to Jake Gyllenhaal – weren’t really her doing because she’s not into celeb dudes, they’re actually more into her.
From The Times (via Now):
‘It’s not like I go for people in the entertainment industry,’ says Taylor, 23.
‘Those have been the types who have kind of gone for me recently.’
Taylor’s known for writing songs about her relationships but she’s not worried about it scaring potential suitors away.
‘You never know who doesn’t ask you out,’ the I Knew You Were Trouble’ singer tells The Times Magazine.
‘But I’m not scared of it. Because I know I’m not going to stop writing songs about my life.
‘So if someone’s scared of that, then that’s not going to work anyway.’
Well… last time I checked, you weren’t obliged to go out with someone just because they show interest in you. Second of all, what happened to being single forever? And yeah, anyone who’s with an artist should figure that you will show up in their work in one way or another (though some would hope not so blatantly), but it almost sounds like she dates these bros just to get a story to write a song about. Don’t get me wrong – I still think she gets more of a hard time than she would if she was a man, but I think she needs to take a deep breath for a moment.

10Nick Lachey Advises Boy Bands To Stay Away From Taylor Swift; I Advise The World To Stay Away From Nick Lachey
You may remember Nick Lachey from 98 Degrees or his marriage to Jessica Simpson. He’s done other things since, but they matter even less than the ones I mentioned. Because of this, you probably don’t care what he has to say about anything at all – especially not his thoughts on the Taylor Swift and Harry Styles romance. And yet, when asked what advice he would give to other boy bands (because, you know, 98 Degrees are still ruling the charts)…
From MTV News:
“Stay away from Taylor Swift!” Nick Lachey added. “She’ll write a song about you… Oh! I’m too late on that one. I didn’t get to [that advice] fast enough. [The song will] be a hit, but it will be about you.”
Yeah, because I’m sure you haven’t written a song about an ex. Oh wait, that’s right, you didn’t write your own songs. Shut up.
I won’t go on about how much it annoys me that Taylor is painted like this annoying harpy while Styles – who, and I’ll say it again, has had even more relationships/partners than Swift, I’m sure – is written off as some studly playboy in the prime of his youth. Is Taylor Swift obnoxious? Probably, but she’s also 24 so it’s kind of an oxy moron. Of course she doesn’t have her shit entirely together. Of course she’s a mess. We all were at that age, we just had the luxury of not having our every move studied by the press.
Anyway, Nick Lachey sucks. That’s really the whole point of this article.

Right, let’s just get right into this one: Taylor Swift has a new boyfriend every .5 seconds, but she’s starting to think she may end up being single forever and has no idea if she’ll ever be able to settle down. Speaking as if she’s saying something entirely new for someone in her early 20s, Taylor admitted that she doesn’t really know where she is in life or how she’s feeling at any given time. Yeah, welcome to young adulthood, lady.
“I’ve kind of realized that I have no idea where I’m going to be next year, or in six months, or in two months. mean, I know where I’ll be on tour in two months, but no idea where I’m going to be mentally, emotionally, dreams, goals, wishes, hopes.
“I have no idea if I’m going to get married or be single forever or have a family or just be on my own. You know, paint in a cottage by the ocean by myself. I just have no idea and I’m kind of into that.”
Is that going to happen? Most likely not, but if it does? Live it up, girl. There ain’t shit wrong with being on your own and doing your own thing, especially when you’re rich because then you can REALLY do whatever you want in life. Money buys happiness, didn’t you know? (SARCASM ALERT!) I say all this as someone who is happily taken for good, but when I was single, I wasn’t phased by it – nor was I out at clubs or bars looking for anyone else. I was sitting in my living room rolling blunts and watching Total Wipeout, so take that as you will.
Anyway, Taylor needs to realise that she’s young as hell and ain’t nobody trying to get hitched at 23 or 24 or whatever she is. Take time away from boyzzzz to find yourself, girl. You’ll be better for it – and probably a lot less annoying, as well.

Taylor Swift is still not content with ruining the music world (I kid! I love you, TSwift!) and has decided to further widen her repertoire to television, where she’ll be joining sister in whimsy Zooey Deschanel over on New Girl during the show’s upcoming season finale.
From Entertainment Weekly:
Taylor Swift is guest-starring in the May 14 episode of the Fox comedy, EW has learned. The country pop star will play a character named Elaine, who is an “important guest” at the wedding of Cece (Hannah Simone) and Shivrang (Satya Bhabha).
The singer-songwriter and New Girl fan has been name-checked multiple times on the show this season: In one episode, Schmidt (Max Greenfield) sent Cece a text in which he said he was going through a “Taylor Swift-like range of emotions,” while in another, Nick (Jake Johnson) tried to cheer up a heartbroken Jess (Zooey Deschanel) with unfortunate dance moves while she moaned, “I just wanted to listen to Taylor Swift alone,” and “22? played in the background.
I mean, I know Taylor was in Valentine’s Day and did that whole CSI thing, but I feel like New Girl is the perfect vehicle for her particular brand of la-di-da, pixie joie de vivre, or whatever the hell it is. I haven’t watched New Girl since towards the end of the first season because I’m terrible on watching TV when it’s not something I can binge through entire seasons on, but I will get to it eventually.

Some surfer bro called John John Florence (what a dumb name) hinted on Australian TV earlier this week that he’s (not) getting it on with Taylor Swift by saying that he’s “not supposed to comment about that” and that their relationship is “kind of a secret thing going on right now” that he “can’t bust out in the public just yet”. Uh, what? Shut up, John John, you’re annoying me already.
In any case, Taylor’s people have vigorously denied these stories and said there’s no way she’s hooking up with this albino looking motherf-cker.
From E! News:
Rumor has it that the 23-year-old singer recently initiated contact with rather adorable 20-year-old pro surfer and that the pair have been growing closer via text message ever since.
Sources assure E! News that “there is no truth to this at all,” and that “Taylor is not dating—or texting—this guy.”
Whatever, maybe she is dating this human Hugga Bunch. I don’t even care anymore. Everyone just do whatever.

This story isn’t so much a surprise as it is an LOL moment, since Taylor Swift has finally admitted that she wrote her hit single ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ about none other than One Direction singer and ex-boyfriend Harry Styles.
From The Sunday Times (via DigitalSpy)
“You’re balancing the analytical side of your brain, which is telling you where to go and how to go there, with the other side of your brain, which is saying, ‘Feel everything you’re singing, and show it on your face. Feel everything exactly as you felt it when you wrote the song’,” Swift told The Sunday Times magazine.
Asked how she felt knowing Styles was watching the performance [at the 2013 BRIT awards] in the audience, she replied: “Well, it’s not hard to access that emotion when the person the song is directed at is standing by the side of the stage watching.”
Oh, snap! The one thing about this that doesn’t make sense, though, is the timeline. Didn’t Taylor and Harry start dating well after the Red album, which ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ appears on, was released? How could it have been about him when she wrote it ages before they even met/got together?
Whatever, we’ll just go with it.
